Meet the Cast: Amber Heard

Eddy, played by Amber Heard, on set of "The River Why".

Amber Heard plays “Eddy”, the feisty fish-loving girl that catches the eye of Gus (played by Zach Gilford) in The River Why.  Ms. Heard is a rising star who played the lead role (and title character) in All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, which debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2006.  Ms. Heard is also the female lead in Pineapple Express, opposite Seth Rogen and James Franco, and The Informers, with Billy Bob Thornton and Wynona Ryder.  She is currently starring with Johnny Depp in The Rum Diaries and with Nicholas Cage in Angry Driver.

You can catch the The River Why at the Dallas International Film Festival (April 14 & 15, 2010) or the Newport Beach Film Festival (April 23, 2010). There are two Special Preview “Thank You, Oregon” Screenings at the Ashland Independent Film Festival (April 9-10).

Stay tuned for more festival and screening announcements!

What’s your Favorite River?

Zach Gilford and Amber Heard fish on location in Oregon.

I recently read an article in the Oregonian that chronicled the simple pleasures of a Winter afternoon on the Nehalem River, in Northwestern Oregon.

It made me think about the many rivers I grew up playing in and fishing in—I grew up just north of Tillamook, OR (a.k.a. “The Land of Many Waters”) so I had lots to choose from—and it made me curious to hear what your favorite rivers are.

My younger sister went fishing last June with her then-boyfriend and came back engaged.  It’s not every day a girl finds a diamond ring in a tackle box, so I’m pretty sure the Lewis River racked up some serious points in her book!

You don’t need to give away any family secrets, but I’m curious: What is your favorite river and why is it special?

Please add your comments to the blog and feel free to add a picture to our Facebook Fan Page.

Cheers!
